When Kovid-10 took a formidable form in the country, this scheme was run for the registered employees coming under the purview of ESIC. On the death of an employee from Kovid-19, financial help is provided to his family. Under this, an amount of at least Rs 1800 per month is given to the family. The benefit of this scheme is given to the same employee who has registered online 3 months ago and has also made a minimum contribution of 35 days. In addition to the assistance to the family on death, 70 percent of the daily average salary is given as illness benefit during treatment in case of corona infection. Sickness benefit is available for maximum 91 days in a year.

Under the rules of ESIC, spouse, legal or adopted son who is below 25 years of age, unmarried legal or adopted daughter and widowed mother are eligible for financial assistance. An amount equal to 90% of the daily average salary of the deceased employee is given to his dependents. This 90 percent is called full rate. If there is more than one dependent, then the relief is divided.
